the packages fail to compile on arm and mips:


as far as I understand, the header hdfi.h defines fixed width datatypes such as float64, uint8, int32, ... depending on the detected architecture, and it's not detecting mips and arm properly.

I've checked, and see that Debian has a number patches for this and related issues, but I'm a bit out of my depth here (and don't have arm or mips systems to test before submitting any patches). What are the options? It would take me quite a bit of time to understand the Debian patches and see what we need.

Ideally, HDF4 maintainers would fix this in a future release. I can try to contact them.
